Get your hands on the DVD set called "The Four Historic Ed Sullivan Shows Featuring the Beatles." Unlike most crap out there, these are the entire shows, one hour, complete with the ridiculous variety acts AND commercials. It was neat to see the entire Beatles performance, but even more enlightening to see the rest of the shows- Frank Gorshin doing Kirk Douglas and Alec Guiness, among others. A 300 lb Tessie O'Shea doing a montage, wearing a mink stole and some kind of drapery. Now she's got a banjo. Also to find out that Ed Sullivan is the most uncharismatic human ever televised. Make Nixon look like Frank Sinatra.
